Holland, MI, October 14, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Robert McMahon, Associate Professor, Horticultural Technologies, Ohio State ATI, compared the plant quality of 4 bedding plant varieties grown under a Venntis Technologies TotalGrow™ Broad Spectrum Fixture vs. a 400 W High Pressure Sodium (HPS) fixture.
Using 65% less energy than High Pressure Sodium, the TotalGrow™ light accomplished equal or better growth with 21% lower light intensities (umol/m2/s PAR) due to spectral optimization.
Per Dr. Mc Mahon "TotalGrow™ lights demonstrated the potential for drastic energy savings over HPS lights while producing crops of equal or better quality in our bedding plant testing. With 21% less PAR light intensity, our primrose plugs grew over 33% wider and taller with better green pigmentation than High Pressure Sodium."
